The names listed in the database above are for obituaries within the obituary collection of the Kingdom of Callaway Historical Society and are now available for public viewing and printing for personal copies. When you find the obituary that you want to view, be sure to note the page number for future reference. This database will be updated occasionally as we add to the obituaries available. The current listing is dated: August 20, 2010. It is important to note that the predominance of obituaries are in the period covering the 1990's through current and there are a number of older obituaries covering the periods of the Civil War and 1850's through 1890's. Not all obituaries in all of these periods are represented in this database. We simply have preserved what we have been given and what is coming out of current newspapers.
The database above may be searched for the occurrence of any string or numeric data by entering the desired information in the text area at the top of the database displayed and clicking on the icon containing the binoculars (extreme upper right side of the database frame) to complete the search. The database may also be sorted by clicking on the header for a column sorting the information in column in ascending order. A second click on the same column will reverse the sort order in that column. You may also sort on multiple columns with the following example. Click on the header of the third order of importance column then click on the header of the column of second order importance then click on the header of the column of primary order of importance. Using this sort example you could so order the file as to present the information grouped by community and general description with the information in each group in order by accession number.
It is possible to vary the size of the columns to reveal additional information contained within the field by clicking and holding the right divider to a field in the header section of the database and dragging it to the left to decrease the size or to the right to increase the size. Fields such as "Detail Information" frequently contain more information than can be displayed and additional information can be displayed by resizing that column.
